Chorizo Tacos

Lets be honest here. Imagine a taco, or burrito with no cheese, sour cream, or dairy. It’s pretty bland, am I right? That is where I’ve been for the last six months. And I love tacos so, this is the worst.

The up side is this. Finally, finallyyy I might be onto something.

I figure if there’s no dairy they need something salt, and flavourful to make up for lack of cheese. So, chorizo you are my saviour! It’s spicy, and salty, and pretty great.

Pair this with some HOMEmade refried beans, and lime soaked radishes? Maybe an egg?
